Tonkatsu Bites with Slaw & Rice

These Tonkatsu bowls put our spin on a Japanese classic, with crispy little pork bites covered with sweet Japanese BBQ sauce and creamy slaw. Oishi? (or delicious!)

Prep Time: 15 Minutes Cook Time: 15 Minutes Serves: 3-4


400-500g boneless pork chops or belly slices
½ box Diamond Coat n Cook
Avocado cooking oil (we love Olivado)
2 cups store bought Japanese slaw mix, with dressing
Japanese barbecue sauce (we love Kikkoman)
Cooked Rice, to serve (we love Sun Rice)


  1. Slice the pork into bite sized pieces. Place in a dish, and pour over 3 Tbsp of water.
  2. Sprinkle the coating mixture onto a plate, then take the wet pork pieces and coat well in the mix.
  3. Heat a generous amount of oil in a frying pan over medium high heat.  Shallow fry the pork pieces until golden on all sides and cooked through.
  4. To make Japanese style slaw, mix the slaw mix with the slaw sesame dressing.
  5. To serve, divide cooked rice between 4 bowls. Plate the slaw on one side, then lay the pork bites next to it. Drizzle with barbecue katsu sauce and serve immediately.
